Background: I went to a comedy show tonight in a comic book store. It's a monthly event that I enjoy and laugh my proverbial socks off at. Generally the comics pay some lip service the to location and talk about a comic they enjoyed or make an appropriate fandom related joke (i.e. a guy a few months back told my… »
GoogleGlass and the bubble in general make me really really glad that I chose to move back to NC from San Francisco when I did, on my terms instead of being priced out and frustrated and without having to see all this business firsthand.
Where I am now, I doubt we'll see Glass for a really long time except on the head… »
Not to spam the Odeck but I thought this might be relevant to a few folks' bookshelves. This is the new direct from the Russian translation instead of the 1970 Russian to French to English translation. »
Not knowing the reference above, my immediate thought was that one has to be named Carmen and the other San Diego. »
I love this but it's unfortunately a hoax.

I think the hysterical laughter (and I've been there too) comes from a flight or fight instinct. As women we're socialized not to fight back, not to be impolite, not to be "a bitch," all the way down to "you'd be a lot prettier if you smiled." That makes for strange reactions that an hour, a day, a year later feel… »
Since I'm slightly bad at following prompts and spring is both an exercise in allergy medicine overdose and roughly 3+/- days of pleasant weather before it is sweltering, my mix is a the quick smush of a Piedmont spring... all sweet tea and mid-afternoon melancholy before Saturday night excitements. »
I totally didn't read India Stoker as autistic when I saw the film but reading your analysis now it makes total sense.I'm going to watch the film again now with that in mind - thanks! »
Is anyone else obsessively playing? I keep waiting for static numbers on signs to start sliding around. »
Not that you can tell in the teeny tiny pixels but my avatar picture is me in an homage to the Baseball Furies shirt. Can you dig it? »
One of my Polish co-workers taught me this. I really wish it was clowns so I could use it more pejoratively more often. »
I finished the season last night around midnight and while I lay in bed thinking about it and trying to beat back the willies and fall asleep, I was disappointed that the entire mystery wasn't unraveled. I wanted more — the unmasking of all those video men, a cogent "this is why there is an old/fort/garrison/prison… »
Chekov's golem :)
You could argue that the going crazy occurred during the fight outside the dance hall and then final showdown but I agree. I expected a little more to make the redemption more satisfactory. »
I've read that many modelling agencies price out their cocaine under "flowers." Nobody needs $10,000 in fresh cut daisies. »
This comment. Thank you.
I've seen every episode of SVU at least 3 times. If there is an article about sexual abuse or rape, I'm going to read it. It's one of the only places I can process what happened to me as kid as an external story and not a nightmare. For some of us, this kind of storytelling is a catharsis and it … »
